ES 1'E'eP"'5.'ff" USTALGIA HITS On August 27, 1973, 1,603 senior high students reported to Edison to start their school year. As always, part of us were excited, antici- pating new classes, new teachers and seeing old friends, but the rest of us were reluctant, thinking instead of old classes, old teachers and homework. This year we had about 55 students bussed here from outside the Edison district and 527 students moving up from junior highs. Those of us who were returning knew what to expect, but the new students could only ponder on how things had been in the past. Whether old or new, WC wondered as a group what this year would bring: traditions kept, changes or what? For the first time in several years it appeared that Edisonites were once again proud of their mighty Eagles. Old-fashioned school spirit was up and everyone started to take notice as we proudly wore our green and white duds on the days of the games fboth students and teachersj We also sold bal lons, buttons, derbies, pennants, T-shirts and spirit ribbons and formed an Edison first with our very own card section that spelled out every- thing from "Eagles" to "Mash Memorialf' Fashion, as always, was constantly changing, but this year everything was nostalgic as we mixed 30's, 40's and 50's styles. Guy-wise: there were cuffed, high-rise jeans or plaid baggies worn with sweater vests, platforms and bow ties. Hair was for the most part shorter and often layered. Girl-wise: there were dresses fat any lengthy and, of course, jeans with shrinks, knit tops and blazers. Hair styles varied from shags to neck length, pageboys to short, short cap cuts. Jewelry was large, plastic and bright. For both sexes, straight legged jeans and overalls were comfort- abl e and, therefore, popular. It was quite a problem last year when bike riding became a fad and there was nowhere to put them all. But now we have seven bike racks and kids still have to chain their two wheel vehicles to fences and posts. Who would ever have dreamed we'd see the day when the bike THC 4 0 Open ks were as crowded as the parking lot? ing l. Edison students Edith MacDaniels, Mel Hansen, Michael Carter, Karen Stewart and Adrian Washington do their best to avoid the often humdrum school routine, 2. School spirit seems to be picking up as students clap enthusiastically during the assembly before the Memorial game. 3.

Before school Officer Robert Crow talks with junior Dave Smith in the smokehole. 2. Many students wander through the halls absorbed in each other. 3. A more Common sight around school, many students have begun to include this book in their studies. 4. During lunch, juniors Duana Kitch and Jimmy Letterman enjoy the quietness of the coutryard. 60 Opening 2 TIMES, ATTITUDES CHA GE Times have changed and it's more than "you've come a long way baby." Today's Edison students may wear the '50's fash- ions or be caught cruising Peoria, but the main difference lies in their attitude. This is the invisible line dividing then from now. Student's minds are being opened to view new ideals and concepts. They may be seen showing affection freely to their honey, studying alone in the courtyard or catching a smoke between classes, which points out that students no longer want to do things to be crowd-pleasers, but to be self-pleasers. Edison high schoolers be- came experimenters and explorers in de- veloping individual values to such con- troversial subjects as sex, marijuana, drugs and religion. Whether it be the morals of society, parents, individuals or the church, they had to decide for themselves what works best for them and to apply those values to make them fit. The difference between then and now is the difference be- tween yours and mine. Opening o 7 1 STUDB TS TA EBREA School requires 7 hours out of 24 hours a day. What does an Edison student do within this time span? Some have spent their 7 hours in school figuring how to get out for seven hours. The art of skipping out was a delicate process if one wished to be successful. Students used any resource available such as forged passes, notes from home and misplaced absentee slips. Remember the day Mary went to the bathroom all hour and John took a long break over a short lunch hour? Though new faces attempted new schemes to break out, nothing had changed. Still the wrath of Mr. Miller hung over our heads, as we mumbled how the car broke down . . . For most students, they would have to wait till their senior year before they could officially label themselves "free.,' 8 0 Opening LETS G0 BRUISI "Hey, man, that's a cool set of wheels you got there." It sounded like a direct quote out of the 50's era, but hark! This was a quote heard in the Edison parking lot before and after school every- day. The maze, provided for student parking, looked like a jungle filled with natives on the loose. At the first of the year people leamed to beat the system by arriving early to park that car in a favorite spot which would also help beat the rush at 3:45. But such planning was of no avail because when the final bell rang, the drums began to beat and everyone was on the warpath in their mighty metal machines. With gritted teeth and a determination to defeat the forces of evil fcarsj which surrounded them Edison students attempted to make a break for it At last freedom was accomplished only to hear the sound of a siren which halted the escape with a ticket for speeding.

Cars of all types can be seen in the dison parking lot, a popular place Monday through Friday. 3. tudents anxiously await their turn to talk with Mr. Miller. 4.

NIGHT mo PM - NQVISLMBER lu, 1913 ll Lazy Days of Summer Fun Filled Hlnnths Pass lluicklu The disc jockies called it the "Summer of '97", but we just called it good ole summer time and marveled at the thought of three glorious months without school. At the end of May, we were released for a vacation of exactly 95 days and what each one of us did with those sunny days could fill several pages, so herets a very short summer summary. Many high schoolers went out into the business world for three months as salesmen, con- struction workers, secretaries or lifeguards. The idea was to earn a buck which would en- able them to race at Kart Ville, go to all night poker parties, play two more rounds of pool, socialize with the crowd at the 51st and Harvard Pizza Hut, or just pay for munchie food at the local Git 'N Go. Kids that weren't working U.S. to Colorado or Florida, like the places were going to be gone the next day. For those who didn't go that far, there were always weekends for going to Keystone or Grand Lake. We would go to almost any length to "get away from it all" for even a short time. Kids who stayed home all summer spent their spare time listening to KAKC, KELI or various other radio stations. Boys listened to Bet Midler blast out the 'fBoogy Woogy Bugle Boy from Company B", as they worked on their cars. And girls sobbed to "Touch Me in the Morning", as they worked on their diets and tans. Everyone moaned at the sounds of "The Monster Mash", screamed as "Delta Dawn" played for the hun- dreth time, and rocked out at KAKC FM,s golden hits from flicks: Walking Tall, Live and Let Die and the all time great movies of the "good old days" like Paper Moon and Class of '44, Many of us came out of jesus Christ Super Star wishing that just once some- one had said something in- stead of singing it, or perhaps walked out of the theater laughing after seeing Okla- homa Crude, because this one and only picture about Okla- homa was filmed in California! Our three summer months came to an end all too soon. We gave up jobs, tossed halters, shorts and thongs into the bottom drawers, and gen- erally prepared for . . . school. Paul McCartney did a good job of echoing the perfect theme of the worthwhile time in his song, "Live and Let Die". And that is exactly what we all did in the one and only summer of were on the move.

It was hard to believe that summer was over already, but when the leaves began to fall, and kids began to play football or wear heavy sweaters we knew that it was time to settle into the school year and say good- bye to summer. Good-bye summer jobs. Good-bye summer songs. Good-bye summer romances. And hello fall! As always, school cut down our dating and par- tying to two nights a week and raised homework time from 0 hours to forever. But there were those times set Hnd Hello fall! aside for getting away from the weekly grind. One group of Edison guys met almost every Sunday afternoon at Zink Park to play football and varied Edisonites could be caught rolling through piles of leaves whenever the opportunity arose. One sort of outdated but popular song stated that, "To every season . . . there is a reason," and although the times were bad fwith Water- gate, the energy crisis and a shortage of gasolinej we en- joyed the season for whatev- er reason!

Stu- dents were seen getting into the Christmas spirit as the con- cert chorus perfomied at various clubs around town, the orchestra and concert band held their annual winter con- cert, the hustling of students shopping and the senior board Entering Edisnn turned into a group of off-key carolers that serenaded many a student to bring smirks and smiles of embarassment from the listeners. With cold weather under foot, some students packed up to move to even colder climates as they mounted their skis to slide down the slopes of Colorado on the Campus Life ski trip. For some Edison students, they spent the major- ity of their time ice skating, practicing for the annual Ice Travaganza. Winter Condids Q I5 lllaqe Eamers Gel Glimpse lll lllorllmq Game Called lute In years past, Edison's working students have been overlooked and underrated as an important part of the student body. Many students Worked after school or with the aide of a privilege pass. They held such jobs as typists, salesmen, waitresses, service station attendants and clerks. Teenagers have always filled these positions, but this year many Edisonites found themselves competing vehe- mently to obtain or to keep their jobs. Why this sudden struggle for job positions? All other high schools in Tulsa closed their doors at 2:45, while Edison students watched the clock for another hour. This extra hour created a severe handicap to the job seekers. Many students found them- selves involved with unique work situations in spite of the mounting competition. You could come into contact with an Edison student several times daily as they would sell you clothes, carry your lug- gage, keep your dog and care for your sisters and brothers all in a day's work. So, the wage-earning stu- dents discovered this year that being introduced into the busi- ness world gave them a glimpse of what was ahead. Plus, the experiences they had provided some pointers on how to become successful and productive at the working game called life. 1 1.

Captain Marsha Evans was in charge of the squad, consisting of Donna Peyton, Pam Treece, Lisa Barry, Connie Rausch, Iulie Altman, Susan Daniel, Lo- weta Waterdown and Lorrie Reed. The girls went to a summer clinic at O.U. for the first week in Iuly to consis- tently bring back a spirit stick every day and to receive a nomination for the Coca Cola award. These girls had an ac- tive role this year because spirit was being put into mo- tion again. The girls were applauded for acting as a team for the first time in years. The girls noticed the crowds' par- ticipation and welcomed it whole heartedly. The cheer- leaders were returned to the days when bobby sox, pony- tails and pon poms were "in" and they sincerely supported the Mighty Edison Eagles. The crowds in turn could plainly see this in the girls as Marsha Evans belted out the chants, Connie Rausch turned bright red after cheering so loud, and the whole squad actually rocked out to 'jesus Christ Superstar." 6 3.

So you just left the football game. You're with your best gal and it's only 10 o'clock and thereys literally nowhere to go. Betty Lou has just informed you that she's sick and tired of dragging Peoria and that she's in the mood to dance. But where in the world can you go dancing on a night like to- night? Then . . . FLASH!!! You remember that there's supposed to be a mixer at school and you decide to give it a chance. It seems that more and more people 'tdecided to give mixers a chance!! this year because at- tendance was really up. For the mere price of 756 per person students could spend from 11!2 to 3 hours talking with friends or dancing to music varying from live bands like, the ever popular, "Dandy and the Grown-ups" or "The House Band," to records being announced by a local D.I. Door prizes also varied from S25 worth of free gas to several free records that were awarded to the best dancers. We seemed to have reverted to the days of, "Lets go do the Hop," and "Twisting the Night Away." The music, whether old or new, fast or slow, was good and loud. The dancers were all over and enjoying themselves and the field- house, as always, was hot, hot, HOT! The schedule is 1-1-4-5-6. Oh, boy! An assembly! Who cares what it's about, just as long as you float two hours, right? Well, there are four cer- tain people here at Edison who care greatly about assemblies. They happen to be Miss Bar- bara Burket and her assembly planners: Stephani Seaman, Donna Wheeler and jeff Fon- taine.

Mixers, Assemblies 0 2l 6 i Outside Hctivities Time was usually sparce for senior high students, and yet there was still a continual quest for fun and action. Many kids found that listening to the radio, watching T.V. or at- tending school athletic events was just not enough to fill their hours of leisure. These people are the ones who could be found playing a game of football or pool, taking music, dance or acting lessons or perhaps dragging Peoria look- ing for a race. One group of Edisonites Httract Students found that their enjoyment in dancing led them to spending a lot of time at Skilly's, the modern dance school for Tulsa teens. Another group of kids spent time at drama classes that were offered through Tulsa Little Theater. And still others pursued their own per- sonal activities like Barbie Haney who trained and showed horses or Serrina McLendon who worked as a professional actress with her own agent in California. 22 o Outside School Activities 1.

But we did it for reasons that weren't always quite clear. Of course, the music was important ibut we could have learned that in classj, so there was something else. A togetherness, a certain mutual feeling that said, "We want our Golden Eagle Marching Band to be best!" The band marched for ap- proximately an hour and a half before school every morning in September and October, not including about two to four hours a day the last two weeks in August. The band prepared for weekly pre-game and half- time entertainment, along with contests like the Marcharama fan all-city band contestj. And this year they marched at the O.S.U. homecoming and in the Santa Claus parade too. Tall white hats and green and white uniforms covered the field as the band, under the direction of Mr. Ed Gibble, and the drum majors, Phil Pool and David Alaback, per- formed. Stephani Seaman, fea- ture twirler, also took her place at the head of many in- teresting formations including a pagoda, a mexican hat, a clock and the Edison big Why, this year even "Big Ed" was back in working condition fafter a new paint job, that is!J All that work didn't always pass without a grumble though.

They performed in green tuxes and played everything from recent popular tunes, to musical scores from plays, to some of the best jazz pieces offered. The Stageband featured brass instruments: trumpets, saxophones and trombones. To help round out the sound a pi- s In Green luxes ano, bass guitar, bass fiddle, full drum set and small ac- custic instruments were added.

This select group of singers took on a nos- talgic look as the girls wore pretty pink dresses and the boys wore new bow ties. They began their year as a strong unified group as they coveted newspapers and phone books in lohn Thompson's garage to bring them a vic- tory in the "Save Our Trees" campaign. Winter brought an end to preparation and a begin- ning of performance. Members wondered if all the engagements would be cancelled because of snow or if fsecond yearj Eliza- beth Smith would make it through a concert without fainting. Shakespearean Songs were sung only pausing to hear Ken Williams solo again . . . and again and again and every perform- ance ended with the tradi- tional song, "Old Irish Blessing." 3.

This yearts Canned Foods Drive brought in a total of around 3,000 cans compared to 6,000 last year and 30,000 the year before. Evidently, our apathy is growing "stronger every day". The seniors won the year's competition between classes, with approximately 1,300 cans. Sophomores were second with over 900 and juniors came in last place with 400 28 c Canned Foods Drive cans. Collectors gathered in the fieldhouse afterwards to listen to a rather unplanned folk fes- tival, made-up of Edison students.

First Hnnual Edison Pops Successful The first fperhaps annualj Edison Pops Concert took place on November 14, 1973. Everyone in the Community was invited to the program which was planned to prove that Edison's facilities could be used for something other than athletic events and also to provide an evening of free en- tertainment. The program was fashioned after the famous Boston Pops concerts. Thirty sophomores, juniors and seniors fgirls dressed in pinafores and boys in vests and bow tiesj helped serve coffee, coke and popcorn to the small candle-lit tables for an hour before the show began. At 8:30 Mr. Lee Wood- ward, KOTV newsman, took the stage to host and add to the program by singing with the symphonic band. The band played medlies from both "South Pacific" and "No No Nanettef' in which members of concert chorus sang and danced. Then Kathy Allen U973 graduatej was fea- tured playing the Greig Piano minor and and Denise interpretive Concerto in A Leslie Grayson Duvall did an dance to "Doin' Time." The with 'Okla- program closed homa" and the audience sang along. At the end of the evening, Mr. Woodward suggested making the affair an annual event and the crowd seemed agreeable. Maybe we will give it another try next year. 3.

Edison Pops Concerto 29 Hctnrs Capable Ut Hlmust Hnuthinq "Sweeny Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Streetf was performed on November 8 and 9, but the people that saw the play happen on stage could never possibly know what went on behind the scenes. Ev- eryone is probably aware that drama-type people are capable of almost anything, and when you put about twenty of this kind of people together, good things will start to happen. To begin with, the play had a few scenes that involved blood, and the artificial plasma that was used was thick, sticky and not very tasty at all. An innocent bystander might have seen Rick Shaffer washing the gummy mess off his "wounded head" or Karen Barber making a mad dash to the water fountain trying to get the horrible taste out of her mouth before it came out on its own. The boylgirl situation found Valerie Carpenter, Iennifer Little and Karen playing extra parts of the "senior women", and flirting with everything ffrorn sophomores to seniorsj that was male. And then there was poor Lance Williams who had a knack of walking in on the girls fixing their makeup in the boy's bathroom, because the girl's room was always locked. Cast members will re- member Iason Graae as "every girl's lover", Dean DeMerrit as swallower", Tim Han eighth-grader "a funny Beach as with class", Vaughn Brock as "LATEl' and Tracy Brown at- tempting to get bubble gum off the seat of Mark Hood's blue jeans. 1.

Balloons Begin llleeii Ut Festivities Monday '20's: Drums pounded, cymbals crashed as the snake line zig-zagged in the halls to lead Edison students to the front of the school building to kick off Edison Week. Green and white balloons drifted into the sky to begin a week of festivities. The first day assembly previewed the activities to come with skits performed by day chairmen. The theme for the week was announced as a look into different decades which started with the 20's and finished in the 60's. At lunchtime flappers served cake in the cafeteria to celebrate Edison's birthday and the annual folk concert was held that night at 7:30. Madeline Whitlow got it together for that night and provided students with one of the best concerts Edison had enjoyed in years. Tuesday '30's: Tuesday, teach- ers' appreciation day, was 32 o Edison Week quite appropriately named "A hand for the over-the-hill gang." Thirties was the theme with memories of gangsters, vi- olin cases and teachers filling the day. A tea was set up in room 221 for teachers to attend during their planning period and each member of the facul- ty received a personalized coffee mug. The after school projects included a homeroom bowling tournament with each interest- ed homeroom entering a four member team. The teams with the highest scores after two games were Mrs. Anita Thompson's seniors, Mr. Bob Sanderson's juniors and Mrs. Mary Pottorf's sophomores. Dan Seiler, junior, topped them all with the highest average award. That night brought with it the basketball Coronation and the crowning of Miss Beth Smith as basket- ball queen. 4 1- it ini 1.

The morning began with frozen doughnuts and sodapop for sale between classes and by midday students filled their tummies with thawed doughnuts, pop and cotton candy straight from the kitch- en of Betty Crocker Cleveland, Qalias Student Congress Pres- identj. The teachers had their own group of lively and vivacious cheerleaders, Mrs. Kathy Butler, Mrs. lean Evelyn and Mrs. Sandra Benson, who cheered their "boys" to victo- ry. After school activities included a teachers victory over students in a basketball game 39-34. Then Mrs. Castle- bury's homeroom weasled their way past the teachers in a volleyball match with a deci- ion of 15 4,15 8,15 8. Thursday '50's: You and Bettylou were able to truck down the halls to see such strange sights as bobby sox and saddle oxfords, ponytails, ducktails and leather jackets as '50's day began by turning back the clock to our impres- sion of our parents' high school days. Tim Hayes, chairman of Thursday, or- ganized a balloon toss which got many students wet behind the ears. That night was the traditional Gridiron called "Slash Your Sweetheart" in honor of Valentine's Day. Peter Robertson, Phil Klappenbach, Hap Herndon, Valerie Carpenter, Karen Barber and Sara Ross made up the group of announcers known as Gideon and the Pits, and emceed the show while Dobe U watched with a wary eye. The night was a success with lots of laughter provided and seven hundred dollars for the Stu- dent Congress bank roll. Friday '60's: Grade school days were remembered as Friday brought around '60's day. Students were reminded of fish net hose, short skirts lwith shorts under them, of courselj, knee high boots, I.D, bracelets and the popular dances of the time. Day chairmen and assembly emcees, Susie McClendon and Ierry Daman, added a new twist to the superlative awards by flashing grade-school pic- tures and then senior pictures of the winners as they an- nounced the senior superla- tives. The Mr. and Miss Edison Coronations followed with the traditional entrance of the eight candidates down the aisle of the auditorium. Larry Cleveland escorted Mary Thomas, Steve Kirkpatrick es- corted Micci Ienkins, lim Ernst escorted Peggy Tschappat and Clay Sublett escorted Sara Ross. Mr. Edison XIV, Clay Sublett, was announced first and then Miss Edison XVII, Sara Ross, was kissed and crowned by him. Both assemblies were over, the folk concert and fa- cultylstudent basketball games had been played out, friends had bought each other suckers and carnations, then slashed each other to bits in the Grid- iron and all the awards had been handed out.

The Eyrie for the first time in a few years was able to announce that it was out of the red and financially stable. With the help of two sponsors, Mrs. Carolyn Hill and Mrs. Mary Faye McFarlin, and the support of Principal Donald O.

Edison took an active part in this celebration and dedication under the direction of Mrs. Eddie Faye Gates. Displays showing posters, books and artifacts repre- sented the Black, Indian, Spanish and Oriental mi- norities in American society. A Black Heritage assembly called t'Blacks in Action" was performed for fine arts stu- dents on February 20. Kenneth Morris, emcee, took the audi- ence on a journey through the lifestyles of Blacks today starting with hairstyles and fashions which were modeled. A poetry reading theatre followed which gave an in depth view to Black feelings in America. Also a very real look- ing demonstration of Karate skills was shown by Vicki Pitts and Adrian Washington. Live- ly dances were put to soul music with the finale, a Soul Train dance where the entire cast, along with sponsor Mrs. Gates, got down and boogied. :www 3 1-wvmwraw tsswwswfx 2 2.

Now I have one request: will some- body please slow things down?" Brett McCormick "In a way I would like to stay in high school and leave my problems to my parents, but I have no choice but to get out into the big world." john Wilkinson "There is a certain amount of satisfaction in that I've made it with my sanity fwell, most of it anywayjf' Beth Smith "Edison has been a major part of my life for six years now. What will my life be like when that special part of me is suddenly gone?" Lynn West "It has really hit me that this is where the kiddy stuff quits, I never actually thought I would be in this position, but here I am, and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world." Nancy Magnusson "Time is going fast and I can't seem to grab hold of any- thing to stop it and let me enjoy something a little longer. I must keep looking toward the future. My senior year is the key to this door." Carol Bays "Being a senior means miss- ing a lot of classes, wearing a senior ring fif you were consci- entious enough to buy onej, and going to the first assembly. Ah, yes, I shall always look back with fondness on my se- nior year at Edison. When else but in my senior year could I see Miss Edison really be surprised? But, alas, it all ends too soon, and spring finds me mailing out graduation an- nouncements and anxiously watching the mail for gifts and money." Libby Bowman "After the graduation cere- mony were parties, parties, and more parties. No one thought of what was said in the auditorium. Everyone was joking around, laughing, and just having fun. The big thing was to hang your tassel on the rear view mirror of your car." Annette Hanson "Ah yes, I can hear the honored guest speaker at com- mencement exercises now, as he tells us all of the impor- tance of our senior year. He, of course, goes on to say that our senior year is the stepping stone from our adolescence to the cold, cruel world that lies beyond. Many seniors actually ac- cept this strange outlook as fact, while others believe the idea generally, but prefer to think of it as the final year of imprisonment at the conclu- sion of which we all are liber- ated."

There were five deadlines spread from Oct- ober through March and the entire book was divided page by page into those deadlines. Then each person had several pages that needed to have copy and pictures that fit per- fectly to size. To add to the mess, each deadline was ear- lier this year than in the past. So, when deadline time came rolling around, there was always a room full of yelling, screaming students who had no copy and approximately two out of eleven pictures. Unfortunately, the staff also had to work under the pres- sure of too little money and too few sales. But the deadlines were met and the book was put together, page by page until, finally, it was pressed into its cover and de- livered directly to you! 'Q 23" 5 2.

Returning to its old, less expensive format, the school newspaper was in- formed by BOC lBoard of Controlj that the third issue was cancelled because of fi- nancial instability. Due to the high morale and strong drive, the staffers went underground to keep the Illuminator glowing. This year's staff was a majority of juniors with only one senior editor. Jackie Gieson, a lively red-headed staffer, was chosen editor-in- chief, the first junior ever to hold the position, and once again a girl, Susie Mc- Clendon, was sports editor to keep the coaches hopping. When the Illuminator was put to print and the news, lthough three fourths of the paper was devoted to advertisementj was distributed to the stu- dents, many a staff member could be seen sinking down into their chairs, and putting their feet up because they had kept the switch turned on for the Illuminator. 1.

Courses .Add Variety To English Program The revised English pro- gram has been in effect for two full years and now is as good a time as any to evaluate it. The program has a three part make-up, the first part pertaining to skills. Students are tested at the end of their freshman year on their knowl- edge of grammar and then they are placed in one of five one-semester courses de- pending on their scores. Skills courses range from English tenth, eleventh and twelfth QSkills 2,3 and 45 to a college prep course titled Skills 9. The second part of the pro- gram offers students a choice of twenty-two different litera- ture courses, including studies of short stories, novels, poetry, Elizabethean and Shakesperean drama and war theories. The third partin- volves seven skills electives which include: journalism, creative writing and even a film making course. The whole reason for the program is to individualize studies to help make the courses more interesting for the students and teachers. The philosophy behind it is, that if students are taking courses they want to take, then they'll do a better job. And it helps when the teacher enjoys their teaching too. Right? Well, read on. Mr. Cox, who has done a considerable amount of the planning, says that last year we had fewer failures in En- glish than we have ever had in the history of Edison. He believes the reason is that now they can place students on a level that they can under- stand and experience suc- cess. Mrs. Carolyn Hill, depart- ment chairman, seems to think that, "everyone feels it's been a big success," and she personally is, "very satisfied with it!" But the program isn't fin- ished yet. ln fact, it will never be completely finished, be- cause kids change from year to year and they want to learn different things every year. ln order to remain an individu- alized process, the program must be continually changing, with an old course being thrown out and a new one being added. Hopefully, this yearly revision of the English curriculum will keep the student interest high. 2.

Speech has always been considered an easy A class that didn't in- volve any homework. But those who were enrolled in Speech, Drama l, Drama ll or assembly planning la class of two or three seniors picked to work on assembliesi found out that that wasn't always true. Speech classes consisted of writing and giving informa- tive, persuasive, humorous and creative speeches. Drama I worked on monologues lone person skitsj dialogues ftwo person skitsi and short scenes from plays, while Drama ll concentrated on per- forming full, three act plays. This year the advanced class even worked on Japanese theatre! Students performed on stage and then class members were allowed to crit- icize, praise or give sugges- tions to the performer. Grades were then based on the Do It classroom performances with "Test" speeches being worth three grades and normal as- signments worth one. ln this world of mass production and bulk quantity a person can purchase any- thing from a dinner in a box to packaged frozen "home- made" ready to serve pie, after walking out of a store with a complete Set of matched casual wear bought in fifteen minutes. Though convenience is en- joyable and fast, students at Edison learned that slowing down their eagerness for ready made goods and turning to doing it yourself was rewarding. As home- making classes taught stu- dents to prepare homemade meals and homemade clo- thing, it proved to be econom- ical and enjoyable. Just like the old days when Granny made the Sunday dinner and Aunt Martha made the kids clothes, students in 1974 are making the past their present as they do it themselves. 2.

Cable T.V. had come into being and was spreading like crazy. Not only did many of the schools have it fin- oluding Edisonl, but if those lucky enough to be in the neighborhoods where they put up the cables were willing to pay 37.50 a month, they could get 36 different channels in their own home. Here at Edison, television sets were hooked up to the cafeteria, instructional media room and several other rooms located throughout the build- ing. This type of set up enabled us to get tapes and films from other schools around the city. These films could either be important lec- tures or programs or perhaps just a certain class that another school had that we didnlt. Edison too was busy making the same types of films to be sent like our Origi- 52 o Cable T.V. nal Works festival for just one example. In Driver's Ed we read rule books and learned all about red, green and amber lights along with railroad crossings and intersections. Then we memorized how long it took to stop when going certain speeds and we watched gorey films that were an attempt to scare us into being good drivers. Unfortunately, no book could teach us how to respond behind the wheel and the simulator was out for re- pairs, so we were on our own. After memorizing the driver's manual we took our permit test and, if luck was with us we passed. We stayed in class during school hours and driving time came after school. The whole aim behind all that work was, of course, trying to get a license, preferably the first time around. C 5 I J N, -.-A we WSWS. ,,gl,,.,,N . kV,, Ri , H ' vi - X NS' Ak K 5.35 J gi.

Remember the good old days of childhood nursery rhymes? Remember when kids couldn't wait until grass- hopper season came around and science class went on fieldtrips to look at the grass on the playground and jars full of creepy crawly bugs. Well we've all grown older and now science classes mean dissection of worms, crawdads, grasshoppers, frogs and fish. And to some it means queasy stomaches, but for those who wish to continue there are advanced courses which offer divisions into chemistry, advanced biology or perhaps even psychology. Homework in these classes consists of formulas, bone tissue and plasma, structures, emotions and habit studies and even learning the parts of acat!

Bonnie Hardy pleads, for who knows what? Current Eventis Einliven I-Iistory Primarily, students have taken history courses to learn about the men and women of the past who made the present possible. But this year history vital to America was being made as each day progressed. Political scandals, economics and so- cial crises and international problems were headlined in every newspaper regularly. Students were taught the fun- damentals of government and cultures of the world enabling them to apply these concepts to the present. Edison students were shown how government must apply the past to the present by wit- nessing such current events as the Mideast crisis, the oil shortage and the Watergate case, which put the Constitu- tion to the test. Students were assigned news magazines and papers to read to awaken them to the issues of today. More students became informed which brought both new light and confusion to their minds causing them to think, ob- serve and to form opinions on the events of the world. 1.

Foreign Language Enrollnlent Falls Foreign language classes faced a sharp decline in en- rollment this year, much unlike the overcrowded classes of the past. One major reason was that the college entrance requirements had been reset to exclude the need for foreign language credits for state colleges. While first year students struggled through structural and gramatical basics, the higher level classes increased their cultural knowledge through the study of other countries' literature and so- cieties. Time was taken out of the daily routine to have students perform dialogues in a foreign tongue and such acts as Spanish Certs, com- mercials and melodramas were the result. French cui- sine was sampled by the students during special foreign foods parties pro- viding enjoyment and an at- mosphere capable of drawing the students to a new and dif- ferent land. w.,,:f-.,,-an Q yr.

X Creative People "Art classes are to turn thoughts into finished prod- ucts as students utilize their imaginations and improve their co-ordination between mind and body," explained Mr. Otto Decker in discussing the purpose and goals for his art classes. The old miscon- ceptions of taking art only for required credit and rejecting the idea of art classes because of lack of talent have been eliminated in the minds of students unlike, past high schoolers, as they partici- pated in a wide selection of courses such as pictorial composition, and two new form design classes dealing strictly with three dimensional design. The students learned that for advanced students, honors classes were offered which let them freely explore fields and styles which interested them with the student putting forth individual effort with teacher guidance. The stress was taken off having talent and the accent was put on using and improving creative ability. When asked what the dif- ference was between a good project and a work of art produced by a student, Mr. Decker replied, "Art consists of an inner and outer. The outer is the tools and materi- als used along with size, color and form relations. The inner is the emotional content sur- rounded by the outer. A high school student, or any artist for that matter, achieves a work of art when a properly constructed outer combined with a communicative inner forms a true creative expres- sion." Music, one of the vocal arts, has been a very enjoyable and successful part of the curricu- lum. Many students have taken part in mixed chorus to learn and to improve tonal qualities and blending ability as the A Capella choir studied and perfected the same along with the added quality of mas- tering the scales without ac- companiment. 1.

Class time included: field trips to museums and churches, group discussions or just listening to every type of music from Beethoven to hard rock. Each member of the class was responsible for a semester project, both semestersg that included a demonstration and a paper on one of the arts in a particular time period. Auto mechanics was not just a course to turn high school boys into grease the souls of car engines under the direction of "Mac." The man behind the wheel was Mr. McPeters, who put many guys into control of their favored and cherished vehicles.

But these students needed the ex- perience in working with au- tomotive parts because in this game only the real thing counts. 2.

The choices were simple and clear: college, the army, or in final desperation, marriage. Your father's father became president of the com- pany without a high school diploma, much less a college degree. Today, society is waking up and rubbing its eyes to see the merits of this and is doing something about it. Vo-Tech, a well equipped technical school, built eight years ago, has come to the aid of many students. The program is set up to allow a student to take his required courses in the VVorking morning and spend the after- noon in classes dealing with a specific skill or trade. Vo-Tech has an excellent varied curriculum capable of appealing to many students. Of the fifty-five Edisonites at- tending Vo-Tech, the re- sponse to this unique educa- tion has been a measure of its success. Mike Simpson, enrolled in landscape and floral design, said, "I was in- terested in it for a hobby, but now it's more than that. They have good supplies, we raise money for equipment by selling corsages and plants. l've gotten a job through the center, and I recommend it for a better education." .... ::,'Fw 'N Ss 4. 1.

Two Edison students, Jana Saubert, right, and Lea Coleman, along with students from high schools across the city enjoy the small classes at their new school, Washington High School. It was new, unique and the government said it must be done. Washington High School took over the center ring for the 1973-74 school year. Ninety-three Edison stu- dents along with four teachers transferred to Washington to play a part in the new pro- gram. The high school's curricu- lum consisted of the basic required subjects plus courses such as Chinese l and aeronautics. Many teachers made the move to Washington to encourage students to come and to prove that a vol- untarily integrated school could work. What were the results of a well equipped and staffed integrated school after one year? Quality education and a step forward towards desegregation were the goals - they were met, 11.11 21.1151 awe.

AUGUST 27, 1973 -MAY 23, 1974 Traditional Congress What could be more tradi- tional at Edison than Dobefs Student Congress? Student Congress performed the same rituals, ceremonies and activi- ties this year just as smoothly and regularly as all years past. Thanks to the officers, Larry Cleveland, president, john Mills, vice-president, Micci jenkins, treasurer, Karen Barber, secretary, and a handful of appointed com- mittee chairmen including Bill Effron, Midge Hettinger, Sara Ross, joe Glass, jeannie Enlow, Peggy Tschappat, Lynn Shep- pard, and Ken Williams, Boy and Girl of the month were elected, sports queens were Periorms Smoothly With New Ideas crowned, canned goods were collected and Edison Callings were sold. An important breakthrough in Edison's apathetic history was the first annual Christmas dance. The advertising and preparation was manned by a few students who knew it would work providing a nice place was rented, T.U.'s Wesby Center, refreshments were served and most importantly, a good band would play, "Col- lection" from Stillwater. The students got what they worked for and on December 20 ap- proximately 250 kids made the dance a success. To wind up the year in a 68 0 Student Congress 1.

The girls ushered at many school func- tions including P.T.A. events, back to school night, concerts, plays and graduation, along with helping out at several per- formances held at the Tulsa Little Theatre. This year's of- ficers were: Kay Gibbs, pres- ident, Kim lett, vice-president, Ann Oliver, secretary, Carol Herndon, treasurer. National Honor Society tbetter known as N.H.S.l was an organization set up to recognize certain students for their academic excellence. Se- nior members were required to have 3.7 grade averages and juniors were required to have averages of 3.5. The group, composed of approximately 160 members, tutored students in need of help. National Merit finalists were chosen on the results from their PSAT scores. ZW re.. we ,, Q v ,,,. T 'si ff we- . in T firew- 1.

Lettermen's club was com- posed of all athletes worthy of receiving a letter in a sport. His qualifications to letter were determined by how much the athlete contributed to and per- formed for the team. A football player had to have played at least 16 quarters or to have been a se- nior with two years of varsity membership behind him to re- ceive a letter.

This was the well known sales pitch for the year from faithful, true green Pep Club members. It seems that money was short, but spirit was high and the members were out to prove just how, f'Big, bad and boss," they could be. The lack of a president and a secretary didn't slow their ac- tivities down in the least. When August football prac- tices started, so did Pep Club: with daily gatorade and cook- ies, gatorade and koolaide, ga- torade and popsicles or just gatorade and gatorade! After school started elec- tions to fill the two empty of- fices ended with these results: Mary Thomas, presidentg Bonnie Hardy, vice-presidentg Paula Mashburn, secretaryp Sandy Parrish, treasurer, and jill Clements, spirit chairman. And along with the officers we also had a new sponsor. Mrs. Virginia Stowell is not only young and energetic but she has true school spirit!

Although often busy playing with plastic balloons, soap bubbles, squirt guns and parachute men, a few of the players took time to answer questions on how well they thought Pep Club was doing this year. The majority replied, "Better than last year," or even "Better than ever." But there were still a few pessimistic replies of, "Well they keep trying!" 3 1.

Pep Club Enrollment Drive Ends With Pie ln Eye Pep Club held its yearly membership drive to get as many girls as possible to at- tend those before dawn meet- ings. Each class had a captain responsible for making sure they kept ahead for fear of what the losers would receive - a pie in the eye! After several weeks of tallying numbers, the final meeting of the green and white race ended with the sophomores happily vic- torious. Two not so happy girls, jackie Cieson, junior, and Stephanie McAffee, senior, faced the music to the tune of whipped cream pies spattered upon their defeated faces. The last fall sports Pep Club meeting each year has been given by the football team in appreciation tor should we say revengel for Pep Club's hand work. This year every girl able to remove her curlers and slap on a pair of jeans fast enough, entered the cafeteria at 8:15 a.m. to watch the athletes put on a star performance. The list of performers were: Mike Eves, displaying his poetic abil- ity, Rusty Coleman acting out Mary Thomas' role as pres- ident, and the annual cheer- leaders led by Marsha tSteve Maleyl. The theatrical produc- tion paused only for one moment to give a sincere thanks to Pep Club, then the girls filed out while the players chanted, "Co Eagles, Hit the Road" to wind up this years' fall sports season. , mm , ,. .- 3.

CVocational Industrial Clubs of Americal. It is a club that is or- ganized nationwide and since its beginning in 1965, has grown to be the second largest occupational and technical club in America. This is a great accomplishment considering that it is also the newest of it's kind. Here in Tulsa there are two completely separate groups to include both morning and af- ternoon classes. There are all- school officers for both shifts along with separate class of- ficers for each different sub- ject. Each class has fun or work activities related to their sub- ject, while the whole school, morning and afternoon, joined for major projects. Like every year there was one big money raising project. This year the students sold boxes of candy at 51.00 per box. The money was used to buy refreshments for meetings, paid the ex- penses of their joint Christmas dance along with 10 per cent going to each class. Mrs. Mary Schneider is a counselor at Vo-Tech, as well as being in charge of V.l.C.A. She is greatly pleased with the size of their group because, out of approximately 950 students, about 650 kids have paid the 52.50 for mem- bership. New Club For Athletes Begins This Year This year there was a rebirth of F.C.A. tFellowship of Chris- tian Athletesl Coach Tom Langham, with the assistance of Rusty Coleman and jeff Swafford, sponsored this orga- nization that gave the male Christian athletes an opportu- nity to meet and discuss their faith. It was a completely volun- tary-type group that, although 410' nation-wide in scope, was divided into separate city and school divisions. Edison's members met only once a month and sent repre- sentatives to the monthly, city- wide meetings. These meet- ings were held at Camp Lockridge in Creek County and were open to representatives from all the schools in Tulsa. M fam .1-, QWMW' 2.

This year Edison splashed back to the days of yore as the Edison Swimmettes recalled old memories of the past when they performed favorite acts and scenes from the water shows of 64' through 72' in their annual show, "Splash- backs." Every year, like this year, the girls wore black tank- suits and funny caps as they swam laps in the cold pool and i perfected stunts while Miss Pat Houston watched over her 20 wetheads. The show was a booming success as old members returned to revive the moods and spirits from the previous shows. Such original acts as Penguins Parade and Candy Canes added that extra touch to provide enjoyment for the audience and perform- ers alike. 2 Splashing it up are Sue Degen, Diana Best, Susan Brenda Barnes, Carol Kurtz, Katy McGuire and Soulsby and Kathy Murphy. 5.

And Thespian Troupe 14 began to act out another year. But this year's troupe broke all tradi- tions in an attempt to form a better club. First of all, they waited to elect officers at their first meeting this year instead of their last meeting last year. Dramatists elected were: jeff Fontaine, president, Stephani Seaman, vice president, Va- lerie Carpenter, secretary, Donna Wheeler, treasurer, and Karen Barber, scribe. Secondly, they planned a December installation for all prospective members. By doing so they hoped to increase interest along with membership. Their hopes evi- dently came true, because at the first official meeting ideas for future projects literally poured in. The Troupe's goals included the producing of a full play, and to set up a children's entertainment troupe. Floor-exroutines, vaulting, working on the balance beam or the un-even parallel bars . . . learning new and more difficult stunts or just per- fecting the ones already known . . .this is what Gym- nastics Club is all about. The group of around thirty- six girls worked after school on Tuesdays and Fridays to learn all the compulsory routines. Every possible preparation is made for those who wish to enter the Cymnastrada, a city- wide competitive gymnastics meet, and 'each girl's work is willingly done. The girls, under the direc- tion of Mrs. Laurann Rogers, chose as their officers: Dara Andress, president, Susan Grayson, vice president, Lisa Berry, secretary, Connie Rausch, treasurer. 1. jerry Daman practices a skit. 3.

The club's officers Cindy Thomas, Ronnie Graham, Martha jones and Sally McGoffin brought Dr. Lowbear, an internationally known pathologist from Aus- tria, to present a slide show on different types of cancer and disease cells. He also dis- cussed what a pathologist's work must deal with. Dr. Man- cuso from the University of Tulsa also spoke to the club on the subject, human sexuality, to bring in another aspect of the medical profession. Though meetings were low in attendance the purpose re- mained strong and the few who attended the meetings benefitted from it greatly. Over the years service or- ganizations have dwindled in number. Once very active clubs like Key Club, Adver- tising Board and Ecology Ac- tion have sealed their graves and now rest in peace. Red Cross has been the single ex- ception to this, because three Be lHe Savers officers, Loni Rombach, jo Fielding and Susan Atkins, knew that their forty members wanted to work. With the help of their sponsor, Mrs. Kathy Butler, Red Cross slated the club's projects for the 1973-74 school year. They participated in the fair parade, did yard work for Bethesda Boy's Ranch, made tray decorations for a nursing home and filled Christmas stockings to make many children happy. The an- nual enrollment to raise funds was met with a "Get Your Doggy Out of the Dog House" campaign aimed at bringing in five dollars from every ho- meroom. Second semester wheeled around with two new projects: friendship boxes filled with soap, pencils and toys for children were made and distributed, and a city wide book drive was initiated to provide literature to Turley Children's Home and Cook- son Hills Boy's Home. Loni Rombach commented on why this year had been particularly successful, "The responsi- bilities were dished out so ev- eryone could work, plus the fact that the sophomores really helped." 1.

Officers chosen were: Carol Coover, president, Martha jones, vice- presidentg and Kim lett, secretary-treasurer. During their Wednesday af- ternoon meetings, members watched slides from Spain, lis- tened to a speaker from an oil company fwho discussed the use of foreign language in businessj and learned Christmas carols in four dif- ferent languages to sing when they went caroling. Law club started the year with a group of 34 members, one sponsor, Mr. Frank Twist, and four officers: Clint Hughes, president, Richard LaBarthe, vice-president, jeff Pilkington, treasurer, and Cary VanSchoyck, secretary. The club made the traditional field trip to the police station and they did hold regular meet- ings, but after an attempt to sponsor an all-school bicycle race which failed to gain par- ticipation, ftwo people showed?

Club officers jan First, pres- ident, Bill Effron, vice- presidentp and Robin Klar, secretary-treasurer met with their sponsor, Mr. Richard Curby, and members on Thursday mornings. Their main concern was to find ways to use the computer for recrea- tion and also for the school's benefit. This year's computer match ta system of matching up boys and girls through the computerl spread from the se- nior high to the junior high earning the joint sum of S300.00! Some of Edison's chess club members could have been seen in Mr. Richard Curby's Csponsorl room almost every morning huddled over one of several mismatched chess sets. Regular meetings were held on Friday mornings, but members competed against each other all year long for the inner- school tournament, so extra playing time was necessary. This year Edison's chess team took third place in the city-wide high school tour- nament. Officers for the club were: jeff Levinson, president, Bob Tattershall, vice- president, Steve Kriedler, sec- retary, and Steve Glazier, trea- surer. nuns I f y . ..... afrr------+ - S, - - ..

Computer Club X Chess Clube 87 From Auditions To Symphonic band was the top group out of all the other instrumental music classes of- fered. Enrollment depended strictly upon auditions and most students in the course were juniors and seniors. The majority of marching band members came out of 3rd hour's symphonic band with the remainder from 4th hour band. One of the band's major goals was to read and to per- form as much material as pos- sible during the nine months ofthe school year. Students were placed in symphonic band as recogni- tion of ability on a certain in- strument. Students in 4th hour were allowed to audition again when their standards of per- formance were equal to those Performances, Band Becomes Competitive in symphonic band. Orchestra members had something to be proud of when they performed in the Edison Pops Concert, but the event filled only part of the school year's work. Orchestra was a second hour class com- posed of students who were accepted after spring or fall auditions tseniors and juniors in the spring, sophomores in the fallh. Emphasis was placed on the development of musical talent and also on the understanding of more difficult types of music. Members of the class were in continual competition for ranking such as: first chair, second chair, etc. which were the symbols of greater respon- sibility and talent. The class always played a varied pro- gram in an attempt to in- troduce different kinds of musical pieces to their audi- ences and themselves .. r ,, Ria--F - . 5 -- wwwmf' - Q 8 . , A , T' W5 88 Q OrchestrolSymphonic Bond 4.

But that wasn't en- tirely correct because not all of the members planned on becomming teachers. To put it in the words of Mrs. Diane Brill, sponsor, the club was formed to help build, "a better understanding of teachers-stu- dent relationships." Of course, the members did learn more about the field of teaching, but they also worked on helpful projects like giving parties for the kids at Hissom or the Children's Medical Center. This was a very unique organization due to the fact that Edison was the only school in Tulsa that had one. Members re-elected Cindy Polson as their president making this her second year in office and then also elected: Nancie Magnusson, vice- president, Sally McCoffin, sec- retary, and layne Phillips, trea- surer. tn the days when people lived in log cabins and kids had to walk to school two and three miles, it was hazardous to get sick and miss school for very long. Chances were that a student would end up getting put back a grade, because he didnft have his lessons. Well, in this day and age, it's not only easier to get to school, it's also easier to keep up with it. No matter what your situation, there's a group at Edison that is willing to help. E.A.S.E. tExtra Assistance for Students at Edisonb is an or- ganization, under the direction of Mrs. Thelma jones, that aids students with any services they can render. The kids in the groups devote approximately one hour a day to deliver homework assignments, help with studies or perhaps just make a friendly visit to homebound or hospitalized students. It's always nice to see a friendly face when you have to stay home. 1 1. Listening intently ata Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting, Richard Butler contemplates the discussion. 4.

Maybe members of the Pep Club were scarce at this meet- Y ing, but the football team always managed to be at the cafe- ,gg5H,.5Wj1,"'Q,f',,i,,',, teria at 8:15 every Friday morning to receive their favors. 3. Computer Club met and only Mr. Richard Curby, sponsor, showed for the meeting. Through history the method of successful political and social change has been through the effective use of or- ganization. With directed en- ergy and action such historical changes as the right for blacks and women to vote, have been acheived. ln every level of so- ciety organizations have turned hopes and desires into reality. Two factors determine the effectiveness of an organiza- tion. First, a clear and strong purpose must be laid as the basis of an organization's exis- tence. This goal must act as the foundation, upon which the group can build and develop their purpose. Second, mem- bership in an organization must be strong. They must act as an integral part of the struc- ture to build success. The sup- ports are only as strong as the foundation. How is this applicable to the present situation here? Each student, whether aware of it or not, comes into contact with some organization everyday he attends school. Each student benefits from organizations and clubs without realizing it, Pep Club providing posters and favors to the sports men, student congress providing balloting in elections, class boards selling spirit buttons and balloons, or school service girls picking up absentee slips. Other specialized organiza- tions providing service and special interests for the stu- dents were available at Edison, such as: Medical club, Law club, Gymnastics club and Thespians. How can the success of or- ganizations be measured this year? Many barely hit the ade- quate mark, while others did not bother to make a mark at all. It is time to stop and analyze the reasons for such decline in membership, partic- ipation and productivity of the groups. Some organizations have found themselves stripped of their original purposes and left only to carry out formalities and functions such as annual activities and money making projects. Key club after a grand performance of the dying swan ballet, disbanned, along with advertising board. Yacht club which had only been in exis- tence one year had either held a secret burial of its own or had hidden itself so well it could not be found. Membership, no matter how splendid and full it looks in a roll book, can only be counted by the number of active parti- cipants and supporters the or- ganization has. The class boards began the year with a high attendance record, but as the year progressed, members became sparce. Edison can testify to many a crushing death for organiza- tions. And the remaining groups either lacked purpose or members which stiffled the building of success. Should anything be done to increase the number of organi- zations available to students? Yes. What could be done to rekindle the fire and start things burning again? lt will take bulldozing people willing to push others into the realiza- tion that they must be respon- sible in their participation if they wish to benefit from club activities and projects. Plus a revamping and clear statement of an organizations purpose will be needed. After Edison's organizations wind up this year perhaps dis- satisfaction and dissappoint- ment will be the pin that will poke students into action and change for a more profitable year in the future.

But the 1973-74 football season has brought changes and with these changes have come victory and a whole new ball game. Pre-season ' newspaper releases said the 2 Eagles would not fly high this year because they fell short defensively. With Coach Langham's new offensive attack that he learned in Houston this summer, com- bined with the elimination of trial and error coaching staff, the players proved during the Central and Rogers All City games that they held the power to win. A victory over East Cen- tral gave Edison confidence that they would be the Nmean green" once again. .. ,.,,,,,. T g , V, I , V ,, , M E 5 ,fwwylfvm 5 trtiee irir ikffi .1 -U . -tg, , t A .

A-squad Football Q 97 pre-ssion nd The annual school rivalry bc- tween Edison and Memorial, which built up during the week with grade school pranks and tricks, was brought to a head on the fields September 28. The Eagles with eight fumbles out- played the Chargers to pieces, unfortunately team's can only win by points on the scoreboard which the Eagles lacked. Rogers became the Eagle target for homecoming which the green and white promptly rolled over with little effort despite the rain soaked stadium. Player Rusty Coleman stated the difference in our team from past years, "The attitudes are V+ Q -M better this year. 'l'hcrc is more unity between juniors and se- niors and we feel more as a team, which is very important if we want to play a winning ball game." Inside the locker room names could be heard such as Stump fSteve Maleyj, Moose fMike Summcrsj, J-cat fTom Burkej, Duf fMark Williamsl, Kip's Big Boy ffioger Waldrupj, and Baby Bunchkins fG0rdon Lawj. But no Edison Eagle will forget the immortal name, Mike Eves or the well known saying t'Come on Down." On the contrary they have 'fgone on up." v nf sf ,.,, 8. ii - y X - 'H 3 A iffy? a if X 'K .

Is there any significance in the fact that the two joined together to form this year's B-squad football team? Obviously not, since- they smashed Webster in their first game of the season with a score of 24-14. Surely their first victo- ry was enough to convince both Coach Mike Pounds and Coach Don Phillips to get out with this team and work. B-squad, which is completely made up of sophomores, had the same game schedule that A- squad follows except for the fact that their games are played on Thursday afternoons at 3 p.m. And although the spirit of the game may not be as strong in the sophomores as it is in the juniors and seniors, you can be sure that many of them have hopes and plans of starting with next year's varsity team.

In this little workout the sophomores had to compete with the varsity players in a real, live, action-packed game. Of course, they were given a few advantages like: their baskets counted two points and the se- any fi A LN I M W 2 niors' counted one, and their team was allowed a few more members than the varsity was. But other than that, the team's chances were equal! If and when the seniors ever lost fand they did at timesj their punishment was running "walls" back and forth for as many times as the coach desired. All that pressure was just enough to keep the team on its toes and winning. 3.

The first game of the season against East Central was a defeat for the Eagles, but the team rebounded in a victory over Rogers.

The physical work- outs were before school and after school which made these athletes come and go in the dark leaving them with a full day behind. The day began with "Nun the Hun's Run for Funw. This was a fifteen minute gallup around the fieldhouse which led into the following excersises including stances, holds and moves prac- tices. Ranking matches to deter- mine Edison's defenders for each week were held in the wee hours of the morning also. Weight had to be dropped off by the pounds daily as athletes faces grew thin and ribs pro- truded from their bodies all in an effort to make weight. A dieter's delight would consist of a poached egg for breakfast, a bag of cheeto's for lunch and an all american favorite - a ham- burger pattie for dinner. Cotton mouth and rumbling stomachs were common feelings to wrest- lers and every one at one time or another had a common jealousy as heavy weight "Big Boy" Roger Waldrup had the privledge of eating his heart out. ,,. 1.

When the mighty Eagles met with the Bartlesville Sooners and the Hale Rangers, the scores were close and the meets were exciting. Against Bartlesville a ictor victory depended on the win- ning of the last relay, which Edison did making the score 48- 47. Unfortunately, Memorial was ahead of us in practice fas far as strength and duration goesj and we lost with a score of 30-48, but we looked forward to another chance at perhaps mashing those Memorialite swimmers.

Coach Frank Grimm led the boys through practices which started at 7:00 in the morning, ceased at 8:00 and picked up again during sixth hour to last until 5:00 or 5:30. That means approximately 3V2 to 4 hours of practice a day which equaled 4 miles of swimming every day! Meets were usually held Thursday nights with diving Year taking place in the middle of the meet. Swimmers were the easiest jocks to point out in the halls because they were the ones with the shiny foften wetj hair, bloodshot eyes and the distinct fragrance of chlorine. The most outstanding feature altogether, though, was the fact that there lettermen's jackets carried two big patches to remind us that they were the 1973 Conference winners and the 1973 All-City winners too. 2.

Placing first in the Oklahoma Six Conference, the Eagles also placed second in the 0.S.S.A.A. Regional meet and seventeenth in the State meet. In their entire season they were defeated only twice in dual meets. Mark Fogley, senior, said, 64We did a lot of things people didn't expect us to do." Tom Daman, junior, stated, "We are just as strong or stronger than last year." Jeff Swafford, senior, re- , - marked that, 'GWe should have at least five individuals going to state to represent the team." Returning lettermen were: Doug Crawford, Mike Durbin, Mark Fogley, Lee George, Wyatt Morgan, Pat Plumb, David Sanders, Jeff Swafford, Ken Willianis, Doug Willmont, Jerry Daman, Tom Daman, Dave Smith and Jeff Mathews.

The Edison golf team, one of the for- gotten sport's groups has been one of the most successful in Edison's athletic's for years. To spur the men to victory in '74, they had two titles to maintain from last year! conference and state. With only one returning starter, Jamie Cash, to head the five top players who ranked regularly by consistently holding the highest scores in practices.

Why was Edison so fortunate to do so well in tennis this year? Because we had the men behind the rackets to bring victory home. Ted Daniel was the head racketeer of the returning top three varsity players. In order were Ted Daniels, Rob Walttrrs and Tom Baker. The team was uncon- querable with a previous win- ning season behind them to spur them on to success. Ted's untarnished record of straight wins and consective state title since his sophomore year, plus his national rank of forty last year gave the Eagles an ace in the palm of their hand. After receiving an invitation to the National High School Tennis Tournament last spring, the Eagles' confidence could not be shaken as they entered their 1973-74 tennis season. With the aid of Coach Ray Nunnely behind the boys and the promise of five new tennis courts for Edison to be com- pleted in '74' this talented group of players took control of their rackets for another season.

To add to the confusion this year, the board had to choose a new superintendent of schools: Dr. Bruce Howell. Unlike years in the past, integration wasn't one of the committees' major issues this year due to the re- formation of Washington High School. The voluntary integration system that Washington offered eased some of the stress on forced integration or bussing.But that was just this year. Who knows what next year may bring? One of the main issues involved making plans for an accountability program to go into effect in the Tulsa public schools by i976 as required by state law. This program would hold all teachers fully responsible for the grades they issue to each student. When this resolution goes through as scheduled perhaps it will help studentlteacher associations creating the basis for a better understanding of the grades being issued. l24 o Administration l.

A word that, in grade school, meant fright, getting in trouble and talks which ended in spankings. But to high school students it should mean getting help and understanding from someone who cares or they wouldn't be there. Mr. Donald l-loopert not only attends school, but he must also attend various school orientation meetings along with being responsible for some l,8OO high school students. Here to help Mr. l-loopert are the two assistant principals: Mr. Nostalgia and Jolly Roger. Now who but Mr. Richard Cox could have earned the title Mr. Nostalgia, with his stylish bow ties and ever present hair flip? To add to his job, Mr. Cox directed summer school and continued work with the new, increasingly complicated English program. Jolly Roger is the nickname given to our very own Mr. Roger Smith who is in charge of the tender loving care of all students. You may also have seen him pa- troling the halls or just holding the walls of the school up while mingling with the students. 3. Mr. Donald Hoopert, principal. 5.

What do these people behind the desks do to make them definitely untypical? Besides running a sideline show at football games Mr. John Butts is a record star with his first hit, Mul- tiplication Tables for Young Adults and he is now an international figure after his tour of Europe this summer. To add a professional note to the counseling staff, Mrs. Odetta Lewis acts as President of the Oklahoma Professional Guidance Association.

These assorted helpers came dis- guised as office ladies, custodians and cafeteria lad- ies. Perhaps their names were never known by many, but their familiar faces aided students in getting things done from writing bulletin notices for organiza- tions, to providing an extra ladder for short pep clubbers decorating doors, to helping a sophomore clean up his mess after dropping a tray. Administration Q l 33 Last Chance For Us The Senior class purchased a package of mixed nuts when they elected their officers for their last year at Edison, Clay Sublett, president, Peter Robertson, vice president, Madeline Whitlow, secre- tary, Steve Kirkpatrick, treasurer, and Valerie Car- penter, social chairman. These friendly and lively of- ficers received a room full of forty to forty-five senior representatives each Wednesday to lead through a year of enjoyment. With a starting figure of S i248 in the bank, the board was financially stable and able to spend their time enjoying the finale to their high school years. They helped reverse the stream of apathy by selling Edison Eagles buttons and balloons, plus holding a car decorating contest to add to the rising school spirit of Edison, A typical meeting con- sisted of the president displaying his l95O's style of bandwagon enthusiasm and his beet red ears facting as embarrassmentl and jokes being made about Steve Kirkpatrick's Afro. Though meetings were enter- taining and moderately enthusiastic Clay Sublett stated the major conflict in maintaining a functional board, "The problem has always been if repre- sentatives and the students don't get behind our ac- tivities it positively won't go. Perhaps upcoming classes will learn this lesson before they leave Edison." l34 o Seniors l.

The class of '74 seemed to have avoided the rush and started their slump early. But this attitude only prevailed in the area of school work and classes. Atti- tudes toward extra-curricular activities held a positive note as seniors mounted their horses to charge onward to football games and car decorating contests for "one last time". Some seemed to repeat their younger sophomore days at spirit and enthusiasm as they boldly attended early morning Pep Club or Senior Board meetings. Many students turned the wheels of progress as they tackled such courses as advanced biology and calculus while others put on the brakes to slow down the pace to several elective courses. l36 o Seniors l Sandra Farrill displays her gymnastic ability Greg Neville and Gary Lee have caught the beat.

This was the year of nostalgia. The year that was known as "the last year". When seniors gathered in big groups you could be sure that the conversation would soon turn to, "Remember when . . .". But there wasn't much time to waste on reminiscing because this was also the year for planning and deciding. The major decisions like whether to go to college or to work, had already been made, but where to go from there still loomed ahead. ' Those of us who planned on going to college had to decide which one to choose. We met with repre- sentatives from different schools and talked to coun- selors, parents and friends. We checked on transcripts, filled out applications on Saturday morn- ings to take those lovely four hour long A.C.T.'s or S.A.T.'s. With everything finished and applications in, we had to sit and wait for that acceptance or rejection that would mean a big step in our lives. l.

And it that was the case, we had to plan just the same. Work had to be found and training and prac- tice had to be obtained, because it wouldn't be too much longer and we'd be on our own. Of course, our senior year was important, but our futures came first. So most of the year was spent with planning, and more planning for what was soon to come. Marsha Evans certainly seems to be excited about something. Seniors o l4l What Was Not Done? This was supposed to be our final and, therefore, best year, right. Unfortunately, this wasn't completely true. We suffered through a lot of moral changes along with a long line of sad failures. The start of it all was the Senior Hayride. What is a Senior Hayride? That's about how well it went over at school too. The event had to be cancelled,when only eight of the thirty necessary tickets were sold. Then there was the helium balloon sale that never quite "got off the ground." ln other words, we ended up selling balloons on sticks lnot bad as long as you didn't get stuck blowing them upll Or how many members of the class of '74 ran out to help with the car decorating contest, or the trash can painting party? Chalk up two more failures for file number thirteen. The group Chicago had a nice song that we certainly couldn't have used for our theme song. The title is something like, "We Can Make it Happen!"

Every meeting was attended by lO or l2 faithful and true-blue members, but all their faith- fulness didn't make up for their sparseness. We did have a rather successful Christmas project though. We sang Christmas carols for the price of 25 cents and anyone could send a sweetie, friend or foe their choice of carol. That was just one small project, but there was good participation, so maybe we could survive the slumps after all.

Like all senior classes in the past, the class of '74 earned the right to stroll into class ten minutes late, turn in overdue assignments and take school at their own pace Cthey thoughtl. For some, a fast pace was assumed by running around "doing" and "partici- pating" in activities and organizations, for others, taking it easy was their goal. Edison accepted the ex- tremely unusual behavior of the Class of '74 because everyone knew the clout of a "Senior."

Micci Jenkins takes of WX' End Of High School Seniors couldn't help but feel the desire and need to shed high school from their shoulders as the classes moved on through the second semester. After being with the same names and faces for so many years, the dream of a new adventure became a common search for many seniors. Whether a college, a training course or a job awaited them, seniors looked down the road with anticipation and expectation. But like all things that people become attached to, students were attached to Edison if for no more reason than having to attend from 9:00 to 3:45 each day. As each member of the class of '74 walked across the stage to shake Mr. Hoopert's hand, the strings were cut and the finale to the twelve year play was reached, leaving one thought in a senior's head, "Am l really ready?" Seniors. l53 A+ For Effort, Pride This year's latest in comedy shows played to an au- dience of approximately 45 people, every Wednesday morning in room 33. The director, Mr. Richard Curby, introduced his cast in the spring of last year as: Stephen Waller, lead, Brenda Barnes, co-star and Sonja -Gibson, Glenda Alderman and Laura Sommers, the cast of thousands. The troupe named themselves, Junior Board, and the year began. The board's first big activity this year was the i974 calendar and pen sales. CThe calendars have been described, kiddingly, of course, as "What's green and white and won't sell? The answer? - the I974 calen- darsll"l Then came the big junior mixer and a com- puter match, which' jointly brought in the pleasant sum of 5325. Members also made plans for the KELI paper drive, various football games, a garage sale and, of course, the one and only Junior Western Day. There seemed to be a certain kind of unity among the officers and throughout their board that credits them with an A+ in spirit and enthusiasm for the l974 junior class year.

Junior participation held the theme "Much Ado About Nothing" as it sunk to the bottom of the barrel along with the other grades at Edison. In athletics, the football team had only a few junior team members and cross country had only one loyal runner, Steve Welch. In the area of organizations, the class of '75 followed suit as they did not participate in them, except for Junior Board, which always held their at- tention and enthusiasm. They did spend their time in- dulging in harder courses such as trigonometry, ad- vanced biology and chemistry. l-lowever, juniors did not live on homework alone. What did they live on?

The junior girls faced the senior girls on the field for a powderpuff football game to show just who was mightier. The senior girls held regular practices, consisting of warm ups and field plays under the guidance of Coach Clay Sublett while the juniors, knowing their superiority, didn't bother with such minute details. Only once did they seem to have second thoughts when they postponed the game. l-lowever, by the next week on a rainy Sat- urday, the juniors were prepared to shut the seniors down and did, winning the game by penetration in a 6-6 tie. But the girls soon learned that they couldn't be successful in every situation they faced. As the sopho- more girls invaded and captured the male population of the juniors, the girls turned to take a good look at the senior "men," who in turn proved to be a recep- tive and responsive group.

The class of '76 an- swered "yes" when they elected him class president. Like Little BoPeep, Vaughn and the other officers, Ellen Sipes, Tom Estus, Kim Kramer and Debbie Piland, led the lost little sheep through their first year in the high school. After the board's first meeting, which lasted only seven minutes, the sophomores started a year of participation and enthusiasm, begin- ning with a kick-off sophomore blender, November 2. To reach their goal of Sl,OOO plus, they sold cotton candy at the winter sports games, and supplied green and white Eagle power buttons to be sold to students in an effort to promote school spirit and unity throughout the entire school. Sponsor, Mr. Jim Womack, commented, "This year's Sophomore Board is the most enthusiastic board since l've been sophomore class sponsor. They are really gung-ho." Perhaps the saying "Best class ever" is old and worn out, but to these sophomore students, it meant brand new ideas and a goal to reach. l.

Sophomores Q l 67 Letha Abel Isabel Acuna Patty Acuna Phil Adams Teresa Affonso Martha Ainsworth Step Up To The Bottom The ninth grade classes of Wright junior high and Edison junior high were joined to form the class of 76. This provided for the excitement of meeting new people for at least, finally, some new facesl. It was fun, but sometimes embarrassing due to that "big step up to the bottom of the pecking order." We learned right from the start that sophomores are often given the short end of the deal, such as always attending second assembly, after the rest of the school already knows who got Miss Edison, or having gym first or second hour when it's still cold outside and the grass is still wet. lt has been said that the easiest way to tell a soph- omore is to look for the driver's education book hidden in his notebook. But we still must realize that we've all been there, and it usually is the greatest year. Nobody cared if we acted a little stupid, and we really did feel wanted because we had a pet name. We're Sophys and proud of it.

Not true this yearl The cast of "Sweeney Todd" included eight sophomores out ot a cast ot nineteen. When it came to sports, this participation existed too. There were three sophomores on varsity football, three more on the swim team, and several on A and B squad's wrestling.

One sophomore complained that when he went home he was a sophomore and at school he was a sophomore. lt was always the same thing. Another sophy compared being a tenth grader to being "an underdog in football because everything is new and you get picked on." The general complaint, though, which carried a lot of truth to it, was that the positively worst thing about being a sophomore was having to do whatever the juniors and seniors didn't want to do. You could always tell when tenth graders made stupid mistakes because that familiar phrase would echo through the halls, "How sophomoric can you get?"

Mrs. Landry made one shophomore's year worthwhile by standing on a table and preaching to her class. Team sports and outside activities bettered the year for others. And some just sat back and enjoyed the thought of getting to one day have a lunch pass. One of the Sophomore Board's slogans this year was: When you take a cup of Sophomore Spirit And a teaspoon of Junior Jazz, Take a dash of salt from the Seniors From the teachers, you take some cash, Then you mix it all together with a whirl And a twirl and a smear.

Traditional Christmas lights downtown were dimmed this year by the energy crisis. CRISIS STR! ES f'Agnew Resignsw, "Nixon Now?" and 'fGas Ra- tioning Proposedd were all prevelant headlines for 1973-74. Students received a different taste of the "good old daysv as gas rationing threatened and gasoline prices rose from the frozen price 37.9 for regular to as high as 43.9 a gallon and going up and an open filling station on Sundays was a rare sight! Shortages of goods became more realistic as food and products from plastics to an- tifreeze disappeared from shelves. Groans were heard when Leviis were hard to come by and Wrangler and Lee had to keep the market par- tially stocked. The energy crisis could be felt as thermostats were turned down to a chilly 68 degrees and out- door Christmas lights could not add to the holi- day festivities in an effort to conserve the country's energy. Unemployment was supposedly down to a record 4922, the lowest mark since World War II, but students and adults alike felt the business world tighten up and even parttime jobs provided stiff competition to Edison students. As if these changes were not enough, some were inconve- nienced during the past summer months while Watergate hearings held priority over soap operas and game shows. More people must have viewed Watergate more seriously as evidenced by the President's sinking popularity pole that slipped off the graph and in poles conducted by Fenga and Freyer that showed 53? thought there was something deeply wrong with America today. This pointed out a new awareness of our country and perhaps a fear crept in to remind us that it was time for change. When change was offered to Tulsans in an ef- fort to revamp the old city charter, it was defeated in a landslide victory which pointed out that a distrust of political leaders was growing and people were not willing to take a chance. The needed change could not be a slip back to the past in search of the golden years, but a good pos- itive step forward to better the future. Closing. l8l l82Q Closing 'I 1.

Eddie Eagle was the victim of an intense school rivalry that got out of hand. MASH MEMURIAL! One event which no Edison graduate can ever forget is the traditional school rivalry between the Edison Eagles and the Memorial Chargers, especially around football season. As September 28 approached, spirit rose at Edison, but not as much as the tension and friction between the schools became visible. This year the usual raids onto the enemy soil were attempted and to the disapproval of some and the hearty approval of others, Edison senior boys took their last oppor- tunity to make their mark on Memorial. Succeed they did by leaving the Chargers with an Edison to view on the school lawn. On the eve of game night, Edisonites filed into the auditorium to hear Coach Sellers repeat for the um-teenth year in a row, Hhow important our support is to the team . . and then to rise to the battle cry. The rivalry was turned over to the field at LaFortune stadium to determine the victors. An interruption halted the contest as a too-brave-not-so-smart Memorialite put on an ex- pedition for the Edison stands by running away with mascot, Eddie Eagle, only to provide the Eagles with the pleasure of watching the young lad being escorted off the field in hand cuffs. The match that could not contain itself on the field did, however, end on the field as the Chargers received the victory and Edison was left with the bitter defeat. But the war would rage on through the rest of the sports season and for all of the future students of the two schools. Closingq 183 fiis 221 .Q Q .. .. W :Q1ii55i5f me ., Ni, QS? S X3 2.

Grade school incidents would soon become blurry or at least faint, so it was important to make these years four memoriesj the best possible. Maturity seemed to be the key to the "lock of fun" during junior high years. As seventh graders we were told to be mature to prove to the older students that we really did belong here. As eighth graders we had to act our age simply because we weren't seventh graders anymore. And as ninth graders we had to set an example for the other kids because we were the oldest. So we set out on the road to "age and memory land" by doing homework, eating cafeteria food, participating in school activities, and suffering through our first experiences of the social world, love and growing up. Sure it was hard. In fact, much harder for some than others, but we had to keep trying because like the song says: School days so they tell us are the most sublime of your life, you,ll have the time of your life, the absolute prime of your life!

I96 20 SARS PASS On February 7, 1951, the Tulsa Board of Education purchased 40 acres of land from Dr. Walter Wright at 3000 East 41 Street for the site of a future junior high and possibly se- nior high school. Architects Black Cgl, West were appointed to design the newest school building in the city in November of 1953. Edison Junior High School, grades 7-9, opened on September 7, 1954. Plans for an adjoining senior high school to be built were announced by Dr. Chalres Mason, Superin- tendent os Schools, in March of 1955. Edison Senior High opened in September of that year with the addition of a sophomore class. Since the senior high was still under construction the following year, the school began a double schedule with grades 7 and 8 attending class from 7:30 to 12:15 and grades 9 through 11 from 12:30 to 5:15 p.m. The new building was completed in 1957 and was occupied that April. That was the first year for Edison to contain grades 7 through 12. On Sunday, May 5, 1957, at 2:00 p.m., the Thomas A. Edison School was dedicated in a special ceremony to 'fthe students of the future? 1'AnLn nrcuN'r:N1's STUDENT LIFE - 262 ACADEMICS - 214 GRGANIZATIGNS - 228 MHNHIIDEX 2 LUUKI G BAG Junior high life imitates the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, while the world passes on it remains frozen in the past.

Students did not take that old legen- dary lecture and put it into practice as school opened up to them and provided more than just text books and report cards. Every student now and then muttered to himself, "Since I had to be here I might as well enjoy it.', And there began student life. Football games, clubs, candy sales and a few dances gave that extra lift to make the unbearable class time and class work tolerable. One activity enjoyed by many was the Student Council Faculty vs Student Football game. www B-Bop Situ, Bnhhu Sucks Hnd ttreased Back Hair Return Hgam One of the high points of this year was our 1950's day. It was decided to have it, the plans were all made, the post- ers all put up and now all we had to do was sit back and wait. October 12 finally rolled around and our waiting was over. We rolled up our jeans, let down our skirts and dug out our old anklets and bobby socks. The boys all sleeked back their hair with grease and wore T-shirts and shades, while the girls curled up their pony-tails and smeared on Mom's red lipstick. Rock n' Rollers were "in" for the day, and platforms were out. The clothing set us back in an era that we never belonged to. But the spirit was there, along with the fun, and a cer- tain kind of Hout-dated" school unity prevailed for the day. ibut. 204 . 1950's Day 1.

We were young one day and old the next, not knowing whether to grow out of our childishness or to use it as an excuse for our some times foolish actions. Our days were filled with sliding down banisters, run- ning late to class and sneaking out of the lunch line without paying. Then we had to pay for our dirty little deeds with pink slips and visits to Mrs. White ffor the girlsj and Mr. Gerard ffor the boysj. Favorite pastimes were: 'iso- cializing" in the foyer, passing notes in class and sneaking into the senior high to get a coke or a zemi! But all in all, junior high was a time for growing up, and those of us who were still tangled up in Mom's apron strings knew that they had to be broken now or never. It became a familiar sight to see ,us gazing out of a window, or sitting outside in the grass just thinking about different things. 3.

Condids Q 205 E ef' irnnuis lllere Just The Beginning This year's ninth grade class stuck with past tradition when they performed a children's play as their final big money making project for the year. The play this year was the musical version of "Tom Saw- yer," with large and colorful song and dance numbers. February 25 through the 28 tryouts were just the start of action. Before performances on April 22 in the evening and April 13 in the afternoon, cos- tumes had to be made, make- up had to be worked out, a musical combo had to be chosen, sets had to be designed fwith the help of Miss Fowlerl and most impor- tant of all, tickets had to be sold! Ticket sales turned into a mass contest with each homeroom attempting to sell the most, and before long the words, "Do ya want to buy a ticket . . " were considered forbidden language. But the practice went on re- gardless of any discour- agement and on opening night the 23 characters and some 20 extras, a rather large cast, were more than proud of the work they had completed. 1. "Listen and listen ood," orders Miss Sla le to people trying out for the play. 2. Rhonda Levine and Ieffaenton show some fancy stepping for their audience. 3.

Leader Corps, that hard work- ing group of gym aides, could be called Leader Corps INC. as they formed their own com- pany. After purchasing a pop- corn popper for the junior high they organized and sold stock to other organizations in need of money and soon they began a regular, once-a-week pop- corn sale after school. For the not so business minded students who were just after a good time, the eighth and ninth grade dance held February 15 enhanced the Va1entine's Day feeling and gave the students a chance to let loose and have fun with classmates. Athletically speaking, with all the sports programs offered to boys and girls alike, the girls cracked down and had an activity expressly for them which was the all-city modern dance program that the Edison girls proudly participated in. 4. Carefully cleaning the new Leader Corps popcorn popper are Carol Isaacson and Lisa LeBlanc, ninth graders. 6.

The queen and her attendants were elected by the football players in October. The seventh grade attendants and their escorts were Linda Ennis with David Branstetter and Iennifer Iones with Bryon Mannering. The eighth grade attendants were Patti Ennis es- corted by Paul Lyon and Lisa Reed escorted by Doug Dear- dorff. Ninth grade attendants were Marci Rhoades and Kim Iohnson with escorts Paul Brothers and Don Spradlin. Fi- nally, there was last land hap- piestl the 1973-74 football queen, Miss Ann Creighton and her escort Mike Cwartney. This year at Edison, there was an excess tif not over- flowi of cheerleaders. Each grade had their own A-squad for their A-squad football team and their own B-squad for the B-teams. Then to make things more complicated, the football cheerleaders, along with any- one else who wanted to, had to try out again to form the basketball A and B squads! The year seemed to be made up of literally hundreds of dif- ferent green and white cos- tumes that appeared all on the same day every time there was a game. ff Y ,, 1 i if po 4.

With Eddie Rob- erts passing ability at quarter- back and the use of backs such as Mark Gray, Paul Brothers and Charlie Brown along with the scoring ability of split end, Mike Gwartney, the team en- tered into the all city Round Robin to chalk up some very impressive statistics. Not only did the Eagles rank second, they held every team to the first down and to a nega- tive thirty yards while gaining approximately one hundred yards in almost every game in the tournament. As the season came to a close, certain players were recognized for their fine performance through the foot- ball year. Receiving the award for the most improved player was Tom Williams and Mark Dale was honored as the most valuable player for the 1973-74 football season. In an interview with Tom Williams about the varsity basketball team he stated proudly "The Eagles have a great team and we are going to take first place." Could the Eagles do it? With two top rated coaches, Ioe Greathouse and Jim Potter with the team, the Varsity began its season with a confrontation with Monroe. After a defeat by one point in the game, the Eagles got rid of their stage fright and were prepared when they faced Thoreau on the court. The stands were to full capaci- ty on both sides that night and starters Eddie Roberts, Craig Ferguson, Matt McNearney, David Reeves, Todd Schupp and Tom Williams gained con- trol over the court to win 51 to 42. With the successful combi- nation of coaching and team togetherness the team had con- fidence to take hold of a vic- torious season. 1 Center Tom Williams shoots another free throw. 2.

Hnd ttttss Extra Curricular Hutrvitu' During the day, students walked the halls of Edison as mild mannered Edisonites, but little did the student body know that when the 3:45 bell rang many turned into "Mr, and Miss Extra Curricular Ac- tivity"! Students were known to participate in sports such as tennis, swimming and golf, while a small group of girls received many hours of exer- cise in a ballet class. Many at- tended a Bible study class held by Mrs. Houser in the evenings which provided them not only with lessons from the Bible, but also with a group of people to share ideas with. Someday the Edison stu- dents may find that one of their associates has become famous! It is possible because you never really knew the person who sat right across the aisle because what met your eye was only one small part of a complete student. c 212 Q Extra Curriculor Activities 3.

Back in a bygone day Algebra was as ad- vanced as trigonometry and third year foreign language students were unheard of in the junior high. Students brushed over the basics of reading, writing and arithmetic as a prerequisite to their junior high school education, which began at that point progressing into the higher levels of sciences, social studies and languages. Who would have believed that once -upon a time gym consisted of a rather inactive volleyball game compared to today's athletics, gymnastics and modern dance? Who would ever imagine that today students would be helping their parents with mathematical and gramatical problems? Higher education, though more advanced than the past, was really keeping up the future. ACELEELIICS 2l5 English Just .Aintt . . Vvhat It Used To Ee In this day and age, English doesn't mean just learning how to read and write, as junior high students discov- ered while passing through seventh, eighth and ninth grade English classes. Reading stories and books, learning new vocabulary words, writing papers and infinitives are, were just part of starting to really under- stand the English language. Kids reached for dic- tionaries, thesaruses and text- books, always preparing for that final day on which fwith a little hope and a lot of studyl they might actually "test out" of future skill classes. finding out what gerunds and K 1.

S Englisho 217 Students Try Skills Compare all those old Broadway hits such as Hello Dolly, My Fair Lady and Oklahoma, to the new plays of today, Hair, Godspell and See- Saw. But what do these com- pletely different types of productions have in common? The junior high speech de- partment has the answer, in- terpretation. The students must learn the basic skills of just because I love to be a ham and I can say things up on stage that l could never say again in person." The athletic department was far from having new and innovative programs this year because it has a simple, never changing purpose: to build and shape bodies. Perhaps the only difference between now and then was evidenced acting through public speeches, monologues, dia- logues, dramatic readings and short readings and plays to enable them to interpret and to assume a character role. The students express them- selves on stage and shed their inhibitions long enough to have a taste of what true acting is and what is required of a good actor. One ninth grade girl exclaimed, "I do it, by more modern gym suits worn by the girls or a few new pieces of gym equipment added over the years. Though the boys mumbled and groaned at the thought of more sit ups and the girls shivered on swim days, physi- cal education served as a rest break for the mind and a reminder to the body to keep in shape. 1.

It was one of those courses that involve a textbook full of facts, days full of homework and tests and, sometimes, a map or chart to make too. We did the work to receive the grade, often without even stopping to think about how much our past means to us today. But when the year came to a close, we had to look back on it and wonder: will the things we did yester- day really make history for someone tomorrow? Foreign languages, weren't required, but there were those of us who just wanted to delve 'b Skill into another culture for one hour a day. Besides it was kind'a fun conversing with a French or Spanish classmate when no one else knew what you were saying. Classroom hours contained vocabulary lists, tests on pro- nunciation, sometimes hil- larious skits and every now and then a special party with native food or dress. By the end of the year we knew all the "Hello" and "How are you" phrases that were required, along with a few choice words that we learned from the translation dic- tionaries and the very popu- lar, "Where's the bathroom, please!" 1.

We were final- ly given a chance to prove the creativity of our inner souls with oil paints, inks, chalks and charcoal. Now art was an elective and most people who decided to take it were the ones who really were interest- ed. We learned about shapes, colors and sizes as we worked with abstract art and collages, Has anyone ever seen a Frankenstein created out of shoeboxes? Or maybe a print carved into a linoleum block? Well, that was art and with it came a discovery that we may not all be Piccasos, but each of us had an inner streak of our own type of creativity. sf V . ...,.-o-A 2.

This program helped to fit the needs of a va- riety of students and progress students rapidly so they could enter more advanced mathe- matical studies in high school.

Homernoking o 227 As the 1973-74 school year progressed, junior highers participated in clubs and organizations that have been at Edison for many, many years. The faces and names of leaders and participants changed, but the purposes and goals of these groups have remained constant over the years. Though time has not changed these activities, students still had new experiences in clubs and or- ganizations as they did what many before them have done, but with the sense of the newness for them prevailing.

They started out the year by collecting S500 for the enrollment drive fa drive that pays for youth projects in the cityb. Then they kept with tradition of past years when they sponsored a Korean orphan and sold candy to help support him. The organization was also one of several that donated money to help buy a wheel- chair for the nurse's office. When Christmas time rolled around, they filled three- hundred stockings with nuts, candy, fruits and toys and then gave them to kids who other- wise wouldn't have received one. The group served under the direction of Mrs. Linda Williams. I W if 1.

Out of those 45, the officers were elected: Kathy Lubin, pres- ident, Linda Ennis, vice president, Leslie Gimlin, secre- tary, and janet Carlson, trea- surer. Then their year began. Club meetings were held every Tuesday after school under the direction of Mrs. Linda Ruhman, sponsor. The girls spent meeting time preparing dances for the Dance Symposium ta city-wide dance program held in january that included both junior and senior high studentsl or for as- semblies. When the girls weren't dancing they were striving to perfect certain dance movements or listening to guest artists discuss their type of dance. 7 l 2.

Well it happens to fall into the category of "none of the above," because this type of Aquillas is the one and only school service for ninth grade girls offered in the city of Tulsa. Edison is proud of this unique organigation which trains girls to file, take mes- sages and make business phone calls while at the same time making the counselor's, teacher's and office assistant's work a little easier. Mrs. Zoe White, the sponsor, explained that when the girls are chosen, "The thing we want from them first is common sense. Secondly, integrity, I think." - Although the girls are se- lected in the eighth grade, their work doesn't begin until the fall of their ninth grade year. At that time they elect of- ficers and prepare for a test on all the teacher's names, room numbers, planning periods and grade numbers. This year's officers are: lane Steel, president, Elizabeth Cleveland, vice president, Robin Robinson, secretary, 1.

And here we have your basic Leader Corps. This group con- sists of approximately 25 very interesting ninth grade girls. Why are they so interesting? Well, it just so happens that they requested their job which consists of picking up dirty towels, cleaning up the locker room, checking showers, leading exercises, taking role, carrying equipment back and forth and various other dirty work. Now anyone who would do all that without getting any- thing in return tother than an ordinary P.E. grade like all the other girls in the classi must be very interesting. Miss Amye Alford, the girls' sponsor, said that the group always hosts the annual Christmas tea and usually has one big money raising project to help buy new equipment at the end of the year. Their meetings were held on the second and fourth Friday of every month under the direc- tion of their '73 - '74 officers: Nancy Grayson, president, Leslie Kahn, vice-president, Lisa Farr, secretary and Becky Swindle, treasurer. 6 W , V 1 Qztwf- ' .rise-Q " wsvixfi .ie at few J in P.. 7 2 .

WE PUT OUR TRUST IN MUSIC Singing was as much a part of school as history and En- glish to the kids in Boy's or Girl's Glee clubs. They at- tended a class, received a grade and often worked sever- al hours after school all "for the love of music". The girls in Glee club were chosen from the various girl's chorus classes on their ability to sing and to read music. Due to the small number interest- ed, Boy's Glee club was the only male vocal class offered. Unity is important when performing choral work so both groups had uniform-type outfits. For the girls, it meant choosing a dress pattern and materials that suited the ma- jority and for the boys it meant deciding on a certain color and style of shirt and tie. The two groups performed at various assemblies and often school breakfasts or meetings, but the majority of the year was spent on plans for a spring concert. Boy's Glee Club o 24l 0 0 30 o in g Students had to mingle, associate, co-operate, discuss and debate as they went from class to class each day. This involved that important ele- ment of a school - people. And where there were people, there was laughter, shouts, giggles, whispers, and a thousand other expressions of feelings. School would be less than complete without names and faces to share a class day. What's the point of it all? When the grey hair and bifocals began to appear on what was once an Edison student and the alma mater's album is pulled out of the dusty shelf, just like your grand- mothers and fathers, you will flip through the pages of that experience of your youth and what will you remember?

Others, such as Mrs. Henrietta Walker and Mrs. Mathel Young, found enjoyment in bridge, a long time favorite game of many. While Mrs. Linda Williams also enjoyed the game, she wanted more ac- tion, so she became involved in watching sports car races and motorcycle races. Mrs. Walker and Mrs. Helen Ward kept in pace by dancing whenever the opportunity arose, while Mrs. Celestia Williams relaxed in a sailboat, or sat reading and sewing as she waited for any opportunity to help youth as evidenced by her participation in Red Cross in past years. l.

The women who worked in the office were always there before us and usually stayed until after every- one else was gone. Their day was filled with typing, filing, telephone operating and solving problems. Then there were the women who spent the better part of their afternoons working in the cafeteria trying to make the meals at school nutritious, filling and enjoyable. l-lard work? You bet. There were: menus to follow, foods to prepare, serving to do and dishes to clean, not to mention the fact that there was a narrow budget to work with, along with shortages and price rises.

This was the final year before making that big step into senior high and everyone began to worry about credits, college and, of course, being a sophomore. Many problems were ahead, just of few of which were. officers had to be elected, plans had to be made and money had to be raised, all in one short year. The first problem was solved on October l l when the officers were elected. Those chosen to lead were: Mark Baker, president, David Reeves, vice-president' Melinda Seale, secretary, and Susan Clark treasurer. The next problem was put to rest when the officers began meetings with Mr. Sherman Robertson their sponsor, and the last problem, money raising, was worked on from November to May. Everyone looked forward to the ninth grade play in spring, the last big project as junior highers. And fi- nally the step from the top of the ladder to the bottom rung again was made andthe race was won. "l-ley, we're Sophomores nowl" sis . 252 0 Ninth Grade l.

Aiming For High Goals For the freshman class, this year consisted of a bit of competition, fun and disappointment. Most of us tound a place in school activities, some as spectators, some as participants. Many ninth graders were in- volved in athletics. We gained confidence from our achievements, academic as well as social. Knowing that our work was an investment tor the future, we strove toward more challenging goals. We were filled with the anticipation of climbing to the senior high throughout the whole year. q""01mf s Aauillas keep the office work flowing smoothly, as illustrated here by Lisa Harbin and Robin Robinson. ,Ay Laura Bell David Bequette Milt Berry Chuck Bigbe Joyce Blair Jim Bloomfield Debbie Bodine Leasa Bodkin Robert Abel Rhonda Adams Donna Allan Mark Allen Randy Allen Jeff Alley Suzanne Alspaugh Alan Ammentorp Debbie Arney Blake Atkins David Attaway Mark Baker Margciretta Ballard Bryon Barron Phil Barton Larry Bays Whitney Beck Betsy Bell Ninth Grade o 253 , we C, i Ainsley Boles David Barn Steve Brannon Alice Brock Paul Brothers Carlos Brown Charley Brown Debbie Brown Marty Brown Leigh Browning Craig Brownlee Ld Bruce Russ Bryan Steve Bryant Scott Buchan Dan Buckley Warren Buller Jean Burke David Caldwell Lea Calhoon Marieta Calvert Charles Campbell Patricia Campbell Sherrie Carll Janet Carlson Eydie Carpenter Raymond Carr Dusty Case Mark Chamberlain Kevin Chronic Steve Clark Susan Clark Karen Clement Elizabeth Cleveland Carolyn Clifton 254 o Ninth Grade Elizabeth Cline Robert Cloyde Carol Coe Tab Cohen Joyce Cole Sam Cole Jo Collins Paul Creamer Anne Creighton Tricia Crews if ...V -.A w Tina Crutcher Bill Dale Marc Dale 'ii an ,w 5 K X 95' w.

We were now the elders of the junior high, and with our title of freshmen come many privileges and much prestige. However, it was not all fun and games. We were given new responsi- bilities of work and leadership. Our opinion of our grade was formed, and to us being a ninth grader was: Knowing that the hamburgers on the first day of school were left over from the lost day of school.

When the equation is joined with Mr. Ervin Postier, sponsor, it all adds up to leadership and hard work throughout a busy year. Maybe eighth grade is the middle year between the babies and the big shots, but there is nothing easy about being the "middle men". Grades don't count until next year, but the homework has to be done in preparation, so that when we move up, we'll be ready to face the work ahead of us. We went to class every- day, did our homework and moved about the halls as inconspicuous "middle men", but behind all that we were holding our breaths, just waiting for that day, when we would become the big shots ourselves! l. Planning activities for this year's class is Mr. Ervin Postier, sponsor. 2.

With the short- age of gasoline breathing down our parent's necks, we handed our bus passes to the bus driver and were forced to stand on corners every morning in antici- pation ofthe ride ahead. Steps to gaining entry on a bus: stumble up the stairs, show your pass or money and find a seat. Those unlucky enough not to find seats, suffered the embar- rassment of stumbling around on their feet while misplacing their books on the floor. Kids that thought themselves lucky to find seats found that they still weren't safe. There was the danger of flying spit wads and cigarette butts tstill burningl. And then, of course, everyone knew the danger in store for a poor unaware that was pushed to the "back of the bus". The back was a miniature London fog of ciggie smoke saved for the kids who could yell the loudest, smoke the most and use the best four- letter word sentences.

But then, of course, we were well known for a little exaggeration like describing the food as: dishwater in disguise soup, dogfood meatloaf and frozen popcicle milk. Famous tricks in the cafeteria seemed to be throwing pickles at the ceiling or dropping chewed bubble-gum into orange juice, the why or thrill not known. And then the biggie, carving your initials in the jello and waiting to see if you get it back, some- time next week. And the final words in cafeteria eating: "Living on cafeteria food isn't living at all." "The only good thing that happened in the cafete- ria is when they took away your tray."

A few suggestions were: have classes from ll:OO to 2:30, have three half-hour classes a day, have a four or a two day week. Then of course, passing time would be lengthened to at least l5 minutes or even a half-hour for a quick bite, if the cafeteria food improved some. Next, they would have changed the content of the class periods to include six ten-minute fire drills each hour. There would be no tests or final exams. The floating schedule would have been fixed floating math and life science five times a week and having gym three hours a day. And, then, lunch hour would be lengthened. Sug- gestions ranged from an hour so they could run to l-lardee's to having the whole day one big lunch break.

Eighth Grade 0 269 It Was A Fun Year What was it like being in the middle? lt had its ups and downs like any eighth grader could tell you. lt meant all the pains of extra homework and harder classes along with the addition of science classes filled with disected frogs and worms. It also didn't take long to find that when anything went wrong in junior high the eighth graders got in trouble for it because "seventh graders don't understand bad things. . . yet" and "ninth graders are old enough to make up excuses." Being in the middle mainly meant being too old to act young and too young to act old. Such was the dilemma of these students. Of course, that in between year could be fun too because we had learned a few tricks from last year. To girls it meant getting a little up front and out back so they no longer doubled as boards. And to boys it meant giving 7B's "snuggies". Speaking of seventh graders, the best part of the year was pushing them around. We were the bosses. We could order 7B's around and call them "Junior Flips" or "Elementary l-langovers", at least until a ninth grader came around and did the same to us. We made this year the best possible and had the most fun we could. lt's going to be a long haul through high school, but at least next year we're al- ready looking forward to our title. Freshmen.

More Freedom Given The difference I noticed between elementary and high school was that you were required to be more in- dependent. We were given freedom in junior high school, but with the freedom there was responsibility which was not required in elementary school, because the activities were more teacher directed and con- trolled. ln the junior high we were given more freedom in the cafeteria while in elementary school there was strict teacher supervision. In junior high, there was more homework and the classwork was harder. l. Gary McKee hands test papers back to his row in English. class. 2.

Then one night we all dressed up, and graduated from sixth grade. I went from recess to study periods. My thoughts were concentrated on "making it" in junior high. Coming into Edison was seeing a closed door open wide. Seventh grade was fun . . . pep club, meeting new people, but you really weren,t much of any- thing. Eighth and Ninth grade . . . Most of us turned into the thing parents dread most: a teen-ager. School dances, parties, banquets, cheerleading, football games, Glee Club, more homework, more new friends and more fun. Ilve almost completed my three years in junior high, and I've loved every minute of it. Memories are worth all the gold in the universe. Although the time is drawing near when I plan my future instead of my Friday nights. My future lies in myself, in my ambitions and my dreams. My years at Edison will help me in my life ahead as I leave junior high behind and reach out for greater things. Carol Coe, Ninth Grade 2800 Closing 2.
